Searching for Journal Titles

If the item you find does not have full text online, copy the title of the journal or book and search for it in the UCLA Library Catalog. Paste the title into the Search for box and select Journal Title (Start of) or Title (Start of) from the drop-down menu.  Select your title from the list and see if UCLA owns the item you seek.  If there is an ONLINE ACCESS link, you can find the full text online. 

An alternative search for full text journal articles is to use the Melvyl Catalog and search for the journal title.  Select the Journal Title (exact) index and enter your journal title in the search box. If there is an Available Online link and UCLA is not listed, try it anyway—we may have access.
